The 50 Best Southern Food Restaurants In America In 2018

14 states (and D.C.) are represented in Opentable‘s list of the Top 50 Southern Restaurants. The state of New York has three (2 in NYC, 1 in Buffalo). Philadelphia and Illinois are also represented, but as you can imagine the lion’s share of the 50 restaurants are all in The South. I was pleased to see a few of my favorite restaurants on this list like The Olde Pink House Restaurant in Savannah, Cypress Restaurant in Tallahassee, Yardbird in Miami, and a few of my favorites in NOLA. It was reassuring to know that I’m picking the proper restaurants when I’m traveling. The list comes from over 12 million reviews of 27,000 Southern Food restaurants across the USA in the past year. These aren’t in order from #1-50, they were listed in alphabetical order by Opentable
